Film Viewing and Q&A with Susan Crate ‘The Anthropologist’

Film Viewing and Q&A with Susan Crate ‘The Anthropologist’

January 25, 2018, 15.00 – 17.30  Movie  W, Wilhelminaweg 3A, Wageningen.

Free for WUR card holders and participants of the WASS course “Advanced Qualitative Research Design and Data Collection”

At the core of The Anthropologist are the parallel stories of two women: Margaret Mead, who popularized cultural anthropology in America; and Susie Crate, an environmental anthropologist currently studying the impact of climate change. Uniquely revealed from their daughters’ perspectives, Mead and Crate demonstrate a fascination with how societies are forced to negotiate the disruption of their traditional ways of life, whether through encounters with the outside world or the unprecedented change wrought by melting permafrost, receding glaciers and rising tides.

Susan Crate is an applied social scientist trained in cultural anthropology and human ecology with a focus on the complex issues of human-environment interactions. She practices ethnography and uses the contemporary theory intrinsic to human-ecological interactions, political ecology, sustainability studies and the politics of social change in her analyses.

    1. Hi Maria,
      thanks for your interest in the film, you are very welcome to join! I don’t know about the costs for non-WUR card holders, it’s probably 7 euros or so.

      hope this answers your question!
      best wishes,
      Britt
